  1. Hello! I would like to pitch a session on ‘teams’/what do we mean when we describe something as a team/management speak within the organisation. This follows form my MSc research where I discovered that people tend to quote definitions of what certain words mean without linking them to their actual working practices or experiences. I’m also interested in looking at the “professional devide” in libraries and how this impacts team working.

  2. Hullo! I’d like to put forward an ide for discussion 🙂 I think the introduction of fees has changed the perceptions of HE library users, and resulted in some visitors going beyond the very common use of a favourite spot to claiming ownership of whole areas of the library. This isn’t to say librarians own it (although some will suggest so!), but claiming the space in such a way can deter other patrons, and in some cases has resulted in aggressive or overtly intimidating behaviour.

    Libraries should be flexible to accommodate most usage, but not to the point where visitors feel unsafe – libraries should be safe places. How can we deal with this?

  3. The Grove in truly an awesome pub, but unfortunately they probably won’t let you sleep there 🙂

    The Central Lodge on Beast Market is a family business and has been popular with people we know who’ve stayed there.
